Volunteers needed to weed out intruders

CALIENTE, Nev.— Interested individuals are being sought to form a new Cooperative Weed Management Area for the Rainbow Canyon watershed area.  All participation is voluntary, but support would be provided from the Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition and the Tri-County Weed Control.  Grant money is available for equipment, treatment projects and reimbursement for herbicides used on private and public land.  Communication between members will aid in effective management for invasive weeds in Rainbow Canyon.

If you are interested in working together to fight weed problems in Rainbow Canyon; please contact Andrew Porter of Nevada State Parks at 775-726-3564 or kershaw@lcturbonet.com.
